The website Money Under 30 organized a list of the top 20 U.S. cities to live in for young, broke, and single people. Here’s the criteria they used:
We compiled our roll call using metrics that matter to young professionals trying to simultaneously launch a career, find love, and stretch a still-meager paycheck: cheap food, cheap beer and cheap thrills, for starters. We looked at a city’s number of bars (after downing a microbrew, of course). Then we hit the lows (unemployment, cost of living) and the highs (numbers of fellow singles and young(er) adults, ages 18-44).
It’s not all that surprising that our home city of Austin, TX comes in at the top spot, although as more of these types of lists are publicized, our already overcrowded city will never get a chance to come up for air. It’s really, really hot in Austin right now, folks. Humid, too. Think about that when you consider moving here.
